It’s hard not to love maple trees when you think of their crisp red, orange and yellow hues every fall. But face it: the helicopter seeds that fall along with their leaves are a pain to clean up.

What can you do when you love the tree but hate the hassle? Well, there are seedless maple trees without helicopter seeds. They’re the best of both worlds!

Find out what seedless maple tree is best for you below.

Maple Trees Without Helicopter Seeds by Zone

For best results, choose a maple within your plant hardiness zone. And while fall is the best time to plant maples, spring is a close second!

Seedless Maple Trees

Firefall maple (zones 3-7): A cherry-red maple that’s tolerant of harsh wind, snow and ice
Celebration maple (zones 3-8): A tree with bright yellow and orange fall leaves that can handle ice, storms and drought
Autumn fantasy maple (zones 3-9): A ruby-red, drought-tolerant maple

Are autumn blaze maple trees seedless? Are sienna glen maples seedless?

Autumn blaze and sienna glen maples do sprout helicopter seeds. However, there are many hybrid versions that are seedless – like the celebration and autumn fantasy maples above.

What about a sienna glen maple vs. an autumn blaze? Which tree is better?

There are several seedless varieties of sienna glen and autumn blaze maples. But not all are. So, double-check again before buying.

Both trees have brilliant fall color, but there are a few differences between the sienna glen and autumn blaze maple. See which tree is better for you below.

Sienna glen maple trees show fall color slightly earlier than autumn blaze maples. Also, come winter, sienna glen handles snow, ice and wind better than the autumn blaze.
Autumn blaze maples are better if you want a quick addition to your landscape that’s easy to manage. They’re notoriously fast growers (up to 3 feet per year!) and are typically unaffected by pests or diseases.
